    Hetep sn.t=i

    I thought of that at first. At first I wrote “ behold” (her). I looked at it again and said /mkt/. My perceived literal meaning threw me off. I did it as /m=k/ “In your hand.’ decline with /t/ seemed wrong. I tried looking at /mk.t/. I talked my way out of it. lol. But your are right, looking at the cultural nuances “ Behold the Aten” make senses and not protector of the Aten.
